Xen Project Developer Summit - Chicago 18-19, IL, USA : What to expect and Why to sign up!

Only last week, the Xen Project team was at OSCON where we launched Mirage OS 2.0 (event report to follow soon, but in the meantime check out the following sessions Nymote and Mirage, Floss Weekly on Mirage OS and Community War Stories) and now our Developer Summit is just round the corner. As we have seen tremendous community growth in the last 12 months (>30%) and the most feature reach Xen Project Hypervisor release coming up soon, I thought I'd share what you can expect.

What to expect?

Xen Project Developer Summits are packed with highly technical content where the core developers of the Xen Project community come together to discuss the evolution of the Xen Project. The conference is a mixture of talks and interactive sessions in un-conference format (which we call BoFs). Newcomers and those who are interested in the progress and future of the Xen Project, it's sub projects (Hypervisor on ARM and x86, Upstreams and Downstreams, Embedded and Automotive variants, Cloud Operating Systems such as Mirage OS) usually will get tremendous value from attending the event. Besides roadmap, feature updates and developer topics, this year features a few themes:

  • Network Function Virtualization
  • Security
  • Performance and Scalability
  • Cloud Operating Systems
  • Topics that are important for automotive/embedded/mobile use-cases, such as Real-time virtualization, certification and ARM support

Why not check out the agenda or watch last year's sessions to get a sense of what is coming. Note that BoF's and discussion groups will be published next week.

How to get the most out of the Summit?

Our developer events are designed to help you make connections and to participate. A good way to network are our evening social event and to network during the breaks. Another great way to get the most out of the summit is to submit a BoF/discussion groups about a topic you care about or to participate in a BoF/discussion group. BoF submissions are open until August 11 and the BoF schedule will be published the week before the event. Most of our talks will have an extensive and interactive Q&A portion, which is another way to engage.
